Academic advisers and advising administrators must understand social identities in order to identify the challenges students face when interacting with various campus systems. However, advising professionals are often untrained in dealing with issues of privilege and diversity.

In this Web Event, sponsored by the NACADA Diversity Committee and led by NACADA Technology in Advising Commission Chair Julie Larsen, our panelists will share information and strategies that can help advisors form stronger relationships with students, identify specific challenges and roadblocks facing students, and create individualized solutions to increase success and retention. In addition, they will discuss ideas for reconceptualizing advising around issues of social justice which can foster both the ability and the responsibility to be voices for change at our institutions.

Offered in collaboration with the Iowa State University Multicultural Student Affairs

Primary audience: Academic and Faculty Advisers.
